Michigan State has been a tough team to bet this season with the Spartans covering only one game despite being undefeated. That trend will need to buck history if it wants to change this weekend as Michigan State is 6-0 SU in their past six against Indiana, but are just 1-5 ATS.
- The OVER is 15-7 in Michigan State’s past 22 games.
- Indiana is 4-10 ATS in their past 14 road games.
- Spartans quarterback Connor Cook completed less than 50 percent of his passes last week.
Indiana must have felt secure after scoring 28 points in the third quarter against Rutgers last week, but the Hoosiers defense had a late game collapse that saw the team surrender 28 unanswered points.
Michigan State was on the opposite side of a stunning win when they beat Michigan with a last second botched punt that was returned for a touchdown. The win ensured that the Spartans keep pace in the crowded race atop the Big East with Michigan State, Ohio State, and Iowa all 7-0 SU with 3-0 conference records.
